The Christmas Queen is Atlantic City-bound! 25 years after the release of her highly-respected, platinum album Merry Christmas, Mariah Carey is coming to town.

It was 1994 when the world first got their ears on 'All I Want for Christmas Is You' and nine other tracks that would make Merry Christmas one of the best-selling albums of all time.

Mariah was just 24. Even the talent she was then could never have imagined the longevity and popularity of that single. It's, without a doubt, one of the greatest Christmas songs ever written. And, year after year, it continues to be one top the download charts during the holiday season. In my opinion, it's a perfectly produced, expertly curated set of songs, (three of which were originals written by Mariah), including the most powerful version of 'O Holy Night' I've ever heard.

Mariah's held more than a few holiday-themed residencies in the last few years, and now she's bringing her Christmas show to Hard Rock Hotel & Casino! We can all sing along to 'All I Want for Christmas is You' together, live!
